Rice paper rolls
Oh, yum. I don't know why I haven't made these before. They are so easy and delicious and healthy. The rice papers only take a couple of minutes to prepare. Soak them in water and pat dry and fill and roll up.
Last week I made some with prawns and noodles and vegies. Today I just filled the rice papers with:
Chopped snow peas
vermicelli noodles (these little nests are so easy to prepare)
squeeze of lime juice
dash of soy sauce
I made a dipping sauce of:
sweet chilli sauce
lime juice (I sometimes add some low fat mayo to this sauce and make it creamy)
HAVE A LOVELY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE
My doctor's visit ended up to be a marathon. My blood pressure was unusually low. She thought she heard something wrong with my heart. I had an ECG - all OK. I was sent for blood tests - all OK.
I have stopped all my BP medications and am now only taking a diuretic. She thinks it was a sudden drop in blood pressure that caused my "episode" before Christmas. She was too worried about my heart to listen to my story about mushrooms. I will take that up with her next time. For now I am pleased that I am fit and well and no longer have high blood pressure. I have been on BP medication since my late 20's.
My red wine is doing its job for my cholesterol. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!) and all is well.
